Author Pamela Olson will present her experiences working and living in Palestine in a lecture and slide show in St. Mary’s Student Center lounge on Monday March 25, from 6 to 7:15 p.m.
Olson wrote Fast Times in Palestine after living in Ramallah for two years. She found herself attending Yasser Arafat’s funeral, guiding Israeli friends on tours around the West Bank, being held at gunpoint and injured by a stun grenade, and witnessing the 2005 Disengagement from inside the Gaza Strip.
